Quality British Manufacturing

Since 1953, Merrell Casting has specialised in high-quality, British jewellery making, including precious metal alloying, same-day casting services and bespoke production. Our skilled team of expert craftspeople can transform a simple idea into a finished creation or mass production run with practical lead times and accessible pricing.

 

Our Mission
We offer solutions at every stage of the jewellery manufacturing process. Our customers can expect precision casting, rapid prototyping, vulcanised rubber or cold silicone moulding, laser welding and mass finishing. We take as much care over large orders as we do one-off bespoke designs. Merrell Casting can build a library of master models, CAD renders and hand-carved waxes unique to your business.

 

Our Ethics
Operating ethically and transparently has long been part of our ethos at Merrell Casting. We are Certified by the Responsible Jewellery Council, operate as a Fairtrade Gold Ambassador and offer our customers ethically sourced Canadian Diamonds. Our principles reach far and wide, covering the environment, the wider trade and, most importantly, the 85+ people that work for us. These values are a common thread that link what we do today, to the business founded by the Merrell family in 1953

 

Our British Made Promise
Since 1953, we have prioritised British craftsmanship and in-house production to give customers a viable, cost-effective and ‘British Made’ option for their jewellery.
We are a pioneer of the ‘Created in the UK’ initiative, led by the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ), and we can offer the special ‘Created in the UK’ hallmark to your pieces through our on-site Assay Office.

 

Our Heritage
In 1953, the first generation of the Merrell family set upon an idea to create a specialist casting company in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Their goal was to offer the highest quality precious metal alloying, casting, jewellery finishing and bespoke services using unbeatable British craftsmanship. Today, Merrell Casting is a leading A to Z service provider in the British and European jewellery sector with an unrivalled offering that fuses traditional skills with contemporary innovation. Over the last 10 years, we have invested huge sums in cutting edge technology to ensure Merrell Casting maintains its reputation as a go-to manufacturer.

Do you cast every day?

Yes, we cast most metals daily. Platinum is cast Tuesday to Friday. Same day service is offered daily on all metals except 18k red and silver. Speak to our casting department for further advice and guidance.

Do you cast in non-precious metals?

Yes. We offer Brass (G metal) and nickel. Both at 20p per gram.

Do you offer a faster turnaround time for urgent orders?

Yes. Our Premier Service takes 3-5 days for existing patterns (moulds held securely at Merrell Casting HQ). We can also offer you the same day service if your order is received before 9:30 am. Extra costs will apply and vary depending on the quantity ordered. Please also be aware of busy times of the year, such as Christmas, which can result in longer wait times. For our most up-to-date schedule, get in touch with us.

What if I need a new mould? How quickly can my casting be completed?

The 3-5 day Premier Service is for existing moulds. If we are making a new mould, this will be approx. 7-10 working days for the order to be complete. Supplied waxes are turned around in a maximum of 2 working days unless you request our same day service. New pattern orders can take 10-12 working days. Contact us for further details.

Do you offer a finger sizing service in wax?

We do offer a sizing service. You will need to be clear if the size required is for a finished item or the cast item as we will size the wax accordingly.

Can you advise me on how to get the best casting finish?

We do this on a case-by-case basis. Speak to our team and we will assess your pieces, their size and the required metal to offer our expert opinion.

Do you offer a finishing service?

Yes. From de spruce to final polish. Whatever is required. Costs will vary depending on metal, size and time taken. Finishing is not offered on non-precious metals. Find out more by visiting our Finishing page.

Can you hallmark items for me?

Yes. All requested hallmarked items are stamped on the day of casting. Even same day castings will be ready to go. Pieces will feature the Hockley Mint stamp unless you have your own stamp stored here at our Assay Sub Office. This would need to be requested from Birmingham Assay Office if you are registered there. Speak to us to find out more and enquire about pricing.

What is the difference between vulcanised rubber and a cold silicone mould?

This is explained on our dedicated mould information page. Put simply, there is no shrinkage from master to mould with a cold silicone mould. Generally, shrinkage is approx. 1.5/2.0% from master to vulcanised mould, then a further 1.5% from mould to casting. There is no shrinkage from master to mould if a cold mould is used. Pink no-shrink moulds are an alternative to a cold mould if the master pattern is metal. There will always be casting shrinkage regardless of mould.
